Acute Care Needleless Connectors Market By Mechanism (Positive Fluid Displacement, Negative Fluid Displacement, Neutral Fluid Displacement), By Connector Type (Simple Needleless Connectors, Complex Needleless Connectors), By End-User (Hospitals, Clinics, Ambulatory Centers) - Growth, Future Prospects And Competitive Analysis, 2018 – 2026

Industry Outlook

The acute care needleless connectors market had a market value of US$ 648.8 million in 2017 and was expected to grow at a CAGR of 5.1% from 2018 to 2026. The key factors responsible for the growth of the acute care needleless connectors market are the rising prevalence of needlestick injuries, high awareness of the advantages of acute care needleless connectors among healthcare personnel, and the increasing number of ambulatory centers. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), 1 in 10 healthcare personnel globally sustain a needlestick injury every year. Furthermore, the WHO reports that each year, approximately 3 million healthcare personnel worldwide are exposed to bloodborne pathogens, including 2 million to the hepatitis B virus (HBV), 0.9 million to the hepatitis C virus (HCV), and 170,000 to the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV).

Market Synopsis

Positive fluid displacement is the most preferred mechanism due to its multiple advantages over negative and neutral mechanisms.

The key difference between negative fluid displacement (NFD) and positive fluid displacement (PFD) is that the NFD device clamps prior to the disconnection of the syringe, while the PFD device does not clamp until the syringe is disconnected. In 2017, positive fluid displacement mechanisms were observed as having the largest market due to the increasing preference of healthcare personnel for high patient safety and convenience and were considered the most cost-efficient fluid displacement mechanisms.

Complex needleless connectors are the most frequently used due to their high convenience for drug delivery and blood collection.

Complex needleless connectors accounted for the largest market share in 2017 due to key advantages such as the capability to allow fluid flow in both directions for infusion and aspiration, the rising prevalence of catheter-based injuries, and the fact that they are highly convenient for healthcare personnel as they reduce the injury chances. Several research studies have estimated that approximately 384,000 needlestick injuries occur in hospitals in the United States each year, with 23% occurring in a surgical setting.

The mounting prevalence of needlestick injuries and the increasing number of ambulatory centers are assisting the growth of the acute care needleless connectors market in North America.

North America was identified as the largest acute care needleless connectors market due to key driving factors such as the rising prevalence of needlestick injuries and complications, the increasing number of ambulatory centers for acute care, and organized and supportive reimbursement policies for acute care. According to the U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), around 5.6 million workers in the healthcare industry are at risk of causing bloodborne diseases due to occupational exposure through percutaneous injury. Furthermore, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) believes that 600,000 or more needlestick injury incidents occur in U.S. healthcare personnel each year.
